Elastic announced enhancements across the Elastic Search Platform and its solutions.

The general availability of dozens of prebuilt Elastic Agent data integrations extends visibility into complex and distributed cloud-native services, enabling users to more quickly solve their data challenges, improve operational efficiency, and, ultimately, provide a better customer experience. New capabilities also include observability tooling for continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines with integrations with Ansible, now generally available.

Deepening its existing integrations through new extension points for Elastic cases and alerts, Elastic now offers customers two certified applications in the ServiceNow Store that provide enhanced control over both IT Service Management (ITSM) and Security Incident Response (SIR) integrations and the data that they transmit.

Elastic also introduced a new ServiceNow IT Operations Management (ITOM) integration to streamline workflows for proactive IT operations. By integrating Elastic with ServiceNow, organizations can standardize and streamline alerting and case management workflows.

Elastic also introduced an AWS FireLens integration, allowing customers to directly ship container logs and events to Elastic Cloud. AWS FireLens is a container log router for Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) launch types, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and AWS Fargate.

Additionally, the beta availability of automated curations enables Elastic App Search customers to harness the power of collected analytics and automated suggestions to create better search experiences.

Other key updates across the Elastic Stack, Elastic Cloud and solutions include:

- Elastic Stack and Elastic Cloud: Adding integrations with AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF), Cisco Duo, GitHub, Crowdstrike, and 1Password to the dozens of generally available pre-built integrations for Elastic Agent, helping customers simplify data collection and normalization. Additionally, a unified management interface in Kibana simplifies the management of distributed endpoint agents, whether customers are using Elastic Agent, Logstash, Beats, or use case-specific data integrations like the App Search Web Crawler.

- Elastic Enterprise Search: Enhanced capabilities in Elastic App Search include support for Google Firebase, enabling users to build premium search experiences into their applications by seamlessly indexing their data to Elastic Cloud. App Search and Workplace Search features are also now accessible in Kibana from a single management interface, providing users with a unified search experience when monitoring and visualizing their search data.

- Elastic Observability: Elastic introduces curated data exploration views to provide users with the ability to visualize and overlay multiple dimensions of data. Curated data exploration views are generally available for real user monitoring and synthetics, and in technical preview for mobile APM. Additionally, customers can now start leveraging the centralized management, scalability, security, and one-click integrations of the unified Elastic Agent across web, datastore, middleware, edge, and cloud-native infrastructure.

“As business leaders accelerate their digital transformation initiatives, they increasingly look to their data to provide actionable insights,” said Ash Kulkarni, Chief Product Officer, Elastic. “With the leading platform for search-powered solutions, Elastic helps organizations, their employees, and their customers drive the results that matter—helping people find what they need faster, keeping mission-critical applications running smoothly, and protecting against cyber threats.”
